Player Profile #32: Yasiel Puig | OF | LAD

The 2015 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide is here! Get your copy for FREE! Last season Yasiel Puig quietly had one of the more confusing seasons in baseball. Take a look at his batted ball profile and tell me what BABIP you’d expect from this player: 14.8 LD%, 51.7 GB%, 33.4 FB%, 7.6 IFFB%, 11.2 IFH%. Just eye-balling it I’d expect something around .290. This player didn’t...

Giants have high expectations of new-look, healthy outfield

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Nori Aoki has reconsidered his original plan to wrestle big ace Madison Bumgarner. ''Maybe after practice,'' he cracked, chuckling while sitting at his locker before the San Francisco Giants hit the field for their first full-squad workout. A few hours later after seeing Bumgarner in person, he had changed his tune completely. No way, not happening. Shortstop...

In Baseball and Business, Leadership is Grabbed Not Given

Why do most baseball teams not have a designated team captain? One of the best recent case studies for leaders emerging on their own whether it be in baseball or business can be found by taking a quick look back at the 2014 World Series teams. With the San Francisco Giants winning two of the last three World Series, it can be easy to forget how close the 2012 team came to not even...

Infield Hits: A consistent metric or mostly luck?

As a Giants fan, I was overjoyed last year to see the team sign Hunter Pence for a five-year, $90 million deal. But after his lackluster september, I looked into his batting statistics. I thought his .277 average didn’t show the whole picture, but his .318 BABIP implies he wasn’t too unlucky. I only remembered him being more unlucky than not this season so I thought about what...

Marlins Man (Kinda) Gets His Own Baseball Card

In January, Topps revealed that they were putting out a subset showcasing famous (and infamous) ceremonial first pitches from the 2014 season. Now they’ve seemingly added another subset for collectors to search for…cards featuring “Marlins Man”. Sure, saying “Marlins Man” (real name Laurence Leavy) has his own card is almost like suggesting the dude next to him does...

2015 Fantasy Baseball Outfield Rankings

The outfield position in fantasy baseball is much like the wide receiver position in fantasy football.  Its nearly impossible to win without a good group.  Most leagues will have you starting at least 3 of them at a time, and across a 10-12 man league, that is 30-36 outfielders that are being played on a daily basis. Half of these guys will most likely be gone within the first...

The stars at Fenway Park usually play between the foul lines, but on one night in September, a young fan in the stands stole the show. In the fourth inning of the Boston Red Sox’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, a foul ball made its way into the hands of a 12-year-old boy named Ryan in the front row. He could have easily kept the ball for himself, but NESN cameras caught...

The Panda has been in Boston for the last couple of days—being wined and dined by Sox brass and David Ortiz.
